Australia may reach nearly 60GW of small scale solar – new CSIRO modelling

RENEWECONOMY | Australia’s main scientific research body, the CSIRO, has significantly upgraded its forecasts for small scale rooftop solar in Australia for the next few decades, suggesting that the total capacity on the rooftops of homes and businesses could multiply from its current levels of less than 10 gigawatts to nearly 60GW by 2050.


The new scenario modelling – a 50 per cent jump in capacity from its previous estimates – is revealed in a newly published assessment by CSIRO prepared for the Australian Energy Market Operator’s 20-year blueprint for the main grid, known as the Integrated System Plan.
